Default Re: Where to find lead sheets cheap


Skip the lead and use a high durometer rubber...120 or more. Durometer is a compression, deflection value. 120 will not feel like rubber as you would typically expect, it's hard.

Why rubber?

Lead doesn't have a memory. In other words it will deform, and you will have a loose motor. You will tighten the bolts/nuts and the lead will deform again. You will tighten the bolts/nuts..etc.

A high durometer rubber will not permanently deform.

Don't "play" with lead in your kitchen! Bad idea!!!
